A Guide To The Best Non-Surgical Treatments For Double Chins
Looking for the best non-surgical treatment for double chins? Áda Aesthetic Medicine in Sydney have you covered
When discussing the best non-surgical treatments for double chins, it’s important to note the many causes of fat under the chin. As we age, our skin begins to lose some of its elasticity and this loose skin can contribute to the appearance of a double chin.
Weight gain is not necessarily synonymous with a double chin, but watching what you eat can help to reduce the buildup of fat. Genetics, however, is something we can’t control, and if it runs in the family, it’s more than likely the reason for the appearance of fat in the treatment area. Let’s have a look at how we can address the issue without going under the knife.
Exercises which may help
There are a number of exercises designed to help reduce the prominence of a double chin which you can do on your own at home, at the office, or on the run. These exercises will rarely cure the condition on their own, however, they will work the muscles in that area and could be used in addition to other non-surgical treatments.
Tilt and whistle
Sit in a chair with your back against the rest and slowly incline your head so you are looking directly upwards. Now close your lips and hold them tight enough so your neck muscles contract, and hold the pose for 20 seconds. Doing 10 of these daily should suffice.
Stretch and pout
While standing or sitting down, push your bottom lip out as far as it will go and hold it there for three seconds. While holding your lips in that position, use your neck to tilt your chin towards your chest and hold again for three seconds. Again, 10 of these repetitions will do the trick.
It may seem completely unscientific, but chewing gum works in a variety of ways. Firstly, it will stop you reaching for any unnecessary snacks during the day. Secondly, while chewing gum you exercise the muscles in your face and jaw, albeit only slightly.
Dieting tips for getting rid of your double chin
Eating right could help with the appearance of a double chin if the cause is rooted in weight gain. A healthy diet will naturally involve lowering your caloric intake, and thereby reduce the amount of fat store.
Increasing the amount of water you drink on a daily basis will also aid in the removal of these fats and will flush out any toxins which may be adding to the problem. Consider introducing foods with a high water concentration such as melons, cucumbers, eggplant, green peas and carrots.
Fat dissolving injections: when surgery is not the answer
Going under the knife shouldn’t be the only option when it comes to dealing with a double chin and, thankfully, that is no longer the case. Áda Aesthetic Medicine’s fat dissolving treatment consists of a series of injections over the course of a few weeks. Patients typically need around two to four weeks to achieve the desired results, though, that may change from person to person.
Each treatment takes about 15 minutes to complete and may produce some swelling and discomfort, but it’s a small price to pay for the removal of a double chin and the side effects are only around for a short time.
Áda Aesthetic Medicine’s range of non-surgical treatments for double chins can help to once again reveal the shape and intricacies of your face. Our range of fat dissolving treatments are done without the painful liability of surgery and involves far less recovery time.
